Modern Morals, Would You Rather, Wedding Traditions – S3E67

Modern Morals, Would You Rather, Wedding Traditions

Stitcher   GooglePlay Anchor.FM

Podcast episode 67 is titled Modern Morals, Would You Rather, Wedding Traditions. I discuss people’s view on morals today, Drey runs through some “Would You Rather …” relationship scenarios, and Ryan speaks on wedding traditions.

Modern Morals, Would You Rather, Wedding Traditions Outline

  • J Topic: Public Opinion on Morals Today
    • I was reading an article from the Pew Research Center on modern morals (A Barometer Of Modern Morals). Pew Research Center took a surveyed on 10 behaviors to determine if it was morally wrong. I will only focus on 3 of them.
    • Married people having an affair.
      • Morally wrong: 88%
      • Morally acceptable: 3%
      • Not a moral issue: 7%
      • Depends: 1%
      • Don’t know: 1%
      • Q1 Any surprises here?
      • Q2 Would these results differ if the person was separated?
    • Telling a lie to spare someone’s feelings
      • Morally wrong: 43%
      • Morally acceptable: 23%
      • Not a moral issue: 26%
      • Depends: 6%
      • Don’t know: 2%
      • Q1 Any surprises here?
      • Q2 Any scenarios that you think it would be morally acceptable to lie?
    • Sex between unmarried adults
      • Morally wrong: 35%
      • Morally acceptable: 22%
      • Not a moral issue: 37%
      • Depends: 2%
      • Don’t know: 4%
      • Q1 Any surprises here?
      • Q2 Does anybody really care anymore if people are unmarried and fornicating?
  • A Topic: Would You Rather …
    • Last weeks episode was dark so I thought we should do a fun and lighthearted one. When I’m drinking with my friends, we love playing “Would you rather…” It’s simply a game where you come up with a hard hypothetical decision and ask your friends what they would do in that situation. It’s not only a fun game, but you learn a lot about the people that you play with. You see how they think and what they prioritize. In the game, you have to choose 1 of the answers and give your explanation as to why you chose that way.
      • Would you rather …
        • Be in a bad relationship for the rest of your life, or never have another partner again for the rest of your life?
        • Have a jealous partner that is willing to be your complete sugar mama, or have a trusting partner that you share all responsibilities with 50/50?
        • Date attractive but stupid or unattractive but intelligent? By unattractive, I simply mean someone that you are 0% attracted to.
        • Find true love, or find a suitcase with $20M?
  • R Topic: A Variety of Wedding Traditions
    • For those of you who saw the IG stories, Kundai (friend of the Podcast and guest host on our Facebook Dating Episode) now getting ready to get married. Being the best man, I wanted to prepare and see if there were any wedding rituals people do today (besides the bachelor/bachelorette party of course covered in this episode) and here’s what I came up with.
    • What type of wedding traditions are important in your culture?
    • What’s the coolest (and/or weirdest) wedding tradition you’ve been apart of?
    • What’s one traditional wedding tradition you’d change?

Understanding, Jealousy, Gaslighting – S3E66

Understanding, Jealousy, Gaslighting

Stitcher   GooglePlay Anchor.FM

Podcast episode 66 is titled Understanding, Jealousy, Gaslighting. I debate if understanding is more important than communication, Andrey wants to get into a deeper depth on jealousy, and Ryan wants to explore gaslighting.

Understanding, Jealousy, Gaslighting Outline

  • J Topic: Is Understanding More Important Than Communication?
    • I saw one of those social media posts the other day that made me think about this topic. I could not find it again, but basically it said that understanding is more important than communication in relationships. You can communicate with someone frequently, but sometimes people just don’t get it; they don’t understand. I’m sure some of you have encountered this before in personal relationships or worked related situations.
    • A prime example of this is the situation with Moby and Natalie Portman. Moby came out with a book “Then It Fell Apart.” In the book, Moby asserted that he dated Natalie. However, she vehemently denies this. Natalie stated  that they hung out a few times, but never dated.
    • So was Moby friendzoned in this situation? The debate between “dated” vs “we hung out.”
    • Do you think that understanding is more important than communication in relationships?
    • The flipside of this is maybe one person is doing a poor job of effectively communicating what they need. Do you guys have any suggestions on how one can effectively tell someone what they need?
  • A Topic: I Do Not Think You Are Ready For This Jelly.
    • I want to follow up on last week’s discussion. We touched very briefly on jealousy and it seemed like we had differing opinions on what jealousy is and how acceptable it is. So I came up with a few more questions to see if we can cover a little more ground.
      • One of the blogs on the dating site, Zoosk, defines jealousy as the fear of losing something, while envy is the desire to have something that someone else has. Would you agree with this definition? Why or why not?
      • In last week’s episode, I mentioned that jealousy is rooted in insecurity. Do you believe that’s the case or are there some situations where jealousy is reasonable?
      • Is there any advice you would give to someone who knows they’re the jealous type but wants to stop?
  • R Topic: What Should I Do About Gaslighting?
    • Gaslighting is a frequently searched term on Google Trends. Gaslighting is manipulating someone psychologically by questioning their own sanity. I personally have not heard of this term until most recently. So after doing some reading and reflecting, I wanted the rest of the team to chime in on this topic:
      • Have you ever experienced gaslighting?
      • Why does it seem that men gaslight women than the opposite?
      • How would you deal with someone who gaslights you in the workforce?

Bad Girls, Relationship Myths, Friendship Spectrum – S3E65

Bad Girls, Relationship Myths, Friendship Spectrum

Stitcher   GooglePlay Anchor.FM

Podcast episode 65 is titled Bad Girls, Relationship Myths, Friendship Spectrum. I want to discuss why some guys think bad girls are desirable, Andrey focuses on relationship myths, and Ryan explores the friendship spectrum.

Bad Girls, Relationship Myths, Friendship Spectrum Outline

  • J Topic: Why Do Men Pick The Bad Girls?
    • I was reading the article 11 Reasons Why Men Never Pick The Good Girl And Why They Should. We will not be covering all 11, but I wanted to focus on the 3 that I think are the main reasons men do this.
      • Men Conflate “Bad” With Sexy (#1)
        • In your experience, do you agree or disagree?
        • To flip it around, is this why women pick bad guys?
      • Bad Girls Are Usually Better In Bed (#3)
        • In your experience, do you agree or disagree?
        • To flip it around, is this why women pick bad guys?
      • Good Girls Can Come Off As Bland (#5)
        • In your experience, do you agree or disagree?
        • To flip it around, is this why women pick bad guys?
  • A Topic: Relationship Myths
    • In our previous discussions, we uncovered a number of relationship myths and touched upon this topic back in S2E19 when we talked about relationship cliches. So I wanted to keep it really simple for this week and discuss some of the ones we have not talked about yet. With the following “myths,” I want you guys to say whether or not you think it’s a myth or if it’s actually true and why.
      • If you’re truly happy with your partner, you should not need to be close to anyone else.
      • Jealousy is a sign of true love and caring.
      • If partners really love each other, they know each other’s needs and feelings.
      • Having a child will strengthen your relationship or marriage.
  • R Topic: The Spectrum of Friendships
    • We covered this topic in Episode 4 & Episode 31, think of this discussion as an added bonus.  Prior to the advent of technology (especially Social Media), friendship was a bit more linear. Now that we have the world at our fingertips, we have all kinds of friends (for all kinds of genders and lifestyles in between). Let’s talk about them and find out if we’re all on the same page!
      • According to Aristotle we have 3 types of friendships:
        • Utility – of need/activity
        • Pleasure – intimacy
        • Good – mutual admiration/respect
      • Which of these three do you have the most in your life right now?
          • Of the three, which do you think is the most important to have?
      • In 2015, Mobinah Ahmad from Sydney, Australia created the Friendship-Acquaintance 6 Stage Theory listed here. Do you agree with her theory, why or why not?
      • Many articles on the internet suggest that different types of friendships men have vs. what women have. Are there any key differences between gender?
        • How about the LGBTQ community, is this any different?

Sharing A Room, Social Media Posts, Sacrifice – S3E64

Sharing A Room, Social Media Posts, Sacrifice

Stitcher   GooglePlay Anchor.FM

In podcast episode 64, it is titled Sharing A Room, Social Media Posts, Sacrifice. I want to discuss if there is etiquette for sharing rooms, Andrey dives into social media oversharing, and Ryan wants to talk about sacrifice.

Sharing A Room, Social Media Posts, Sacrifice Outline

  • J Topic: Hey, So Can We Share A Room?
      • When we were college students, we did not have a lot of disposable income (unless that FInancial Aid check cleared). So if a group went on vacation, a shared room was commonplace. Now that we are 30 or 40-somethings, is this no longer an acceptable practice?
        • Scenario 1: In my late 30s, one of my friend’s suggested that we get our own rooms for a guys Vegas trip. Reasoning was because we were adults, it’s weird that guys share a bed, and we can afford to do so now.
          • What are your thoughts on this?
        • Scenario 2: My girlfriend was on a trip with her girlfriends and a male friend (late 50s) asked to stay with them. They agreed, but my girlfriend thought it was inappropriate.
          • How do you guys feel about this?
        • Scenario 3: Going to Chicago with some friends (1 guy and 1 lady). We discussed getting a room together–2 beds. Because this has been on my mind lately I told him that it would be fine if I got my own room in case the female does not feel comfortable sharing a room. He asked me “Do women get weirded out by that?”
          • Was I right about suggesting that?
        • Scenario 4: Spur of the moment trip to visit you–out-of-town friend(s).
          • If they ask you to stay at your place, do you allow it?
          • If you go visit friends, do you ask to stay at their place?
        • Are we at a place in our lives now that we should all pay for own lodging instead of share?
  • A Topic: Should I Have Posted That?
      • Like I said in my positive note, I went off-roading this weekend. What I didn’t mention was part of the reason for the trip was because I needed to do a photoshoot for work. Because of the nature of what I shoot, I’m unable to release the photos or post them on social media in any way. It doesn’t really bother me because I tend not to post anyway, for better or worse. But, I know that a lot of people struggle with this. So, I figured we should talk about it.
      • Have you ever posted something on social media that you realized afterwards wasn’t appropriate?
      • Like I mentioned on previous episodes, I only post vacation pictures while I’m on the vacation if I have someone watching my house. Do you ever feel like it’s a problem when people know where you are? Do you take any preventative measures to secure yourself from those that may want to do you harm?
      • How do you feel about parents that constantly post pictures of their kids along with their names? Do you feel that this is dangerous, or just a sign of the times?
      • Are there any other social media faux pas that you can think of that piss you off?
  • R Topic: What’s The Definition Of Sacrifice In 2019?

Dating Death, Dealing With An Ex, Partner Reassurance – S3E63

Dating Death, Dealing With An Ex, Partner Reassurance

Stitcher   GooglePlay Anchor.FM

Welcome to episode 63! In podcast episode 63, I want to discuss relationships with people in the industry of death, Andrey dives into dealing with your exes, and Ryan wants to talk about partner reassurance.

Dating Death, Dealing With An Ex, Partner Reassurance Outline

  • J Topic: Dating Someone In The Business Of Death
    • In episode 62, Ryan discussed Creepy Jobs. It made me think about people who work in these industries. What is their dating life like compared to everyone else? Is it really that much different?
      • How much of a concern should another person’s career be if you want to date them?
      • Do you think there is a misconception about people that work with death (morticians, embalmers, funeral directors, etc)?
      • One concern is having the”How was your day? discussion. Is this any different than couples that have vastly different professions?
      • As your younger self, would you have dated someone that had a career in death?
  • A Topic: How to Deal With Exes?
    • I went to my last wedding of this year and it was a big one. While it was generally a good and happy time for everyone, a by-product of big weddings is that there’s bound to be at least some beef when there’s that many people. Even though it didn’t necessarily cause any drama that night (thankfully), there were some interesting discussions the morning after.
      • Have you ever had to deal with a situation where you were forced to be around your ex for the sake of another friend?
      • Have you ever bailed on a friend because you didn’t want to deal with your ex?
      • What do you think is the best way to deal with a situation like that (i.e. do you suck it up and say hi and call a truce, or just avoid her the whole night)?
  • R Topic: The Importance of Partner Reassurance in a Relationship
    • Ayesha Curry has been getting negative feedback because of the comment that she has not received any male attention for the past 10 years. Although, her husband, Stephen Curry, seems to get a lot of attention from female groupies. The discussion I propose to the group is the importance of a partner’s reassurance in a relationship.
      • Do you feel more men or women need reassurance in a long-term relationship? Why or Why not?
        • Do you think this is different in LGBTQ or inanimate relationships?
      • Do you feel the person who does not get the reassurance in the relationship has the right to be insecure if this need are not met?
      • If both partners, had an equal amount of sexual appeal and reassurance from their significant other, would it still be an issue with either gender?
      • Do you think reassurance is necessary to have a stable and health relationship in the long-run?

Relationship Age Gap, BeautifulPeople.com, Creepy Jobs – S3E62

Relationship Age Gap, BeautifulPeople.com, Creepy Jobs

Stitcher   GooglePlay Anchor.FM

Welcome to episode 62! In this episode, I focus on relationship age gaps, Andrey discusses an exclusive dating club. and Ryan explores weird (and/or creepy) career options.

Relationship Age Gap, BeautifulPeople.com, Creepy Jobs Outline

  • J Topic: Let’s Talk About The Relationship Age Gap
    • Should age matter between 2 consenting adults?
    • What about relationships between a minor and adult?
      • Is there a difference between couples that are 17 and 18  vs. 17 and 40 year old?
    • Why is there stigma between men and women?
      • Men dating younger women vs. Women dating younger men
    • Men typically date younger for fertility.
      • Is this still a truthful statement today?
      • Will this always be true?
    • Women date older men for resources.
      • Will this always be true?
      • Since the wage gap is getting smaller between the sexes, how likely is this going to be true in the future?
  • A Topic: Beautifulpeople.com
    • Beautifulpeople.com has been around since 2002, but the New York Post broke the news on this controversial dating site yesterday. To add your profile to this site, you have to get voted in by the users. If you don’t make the cut, then you simply can’t be a part of this exclusive dating site.
      • What are your initial thoughts and reactions?
    • The required traits are all completely aesthetic: bad teeth, overweight, too effeminate, etc.
      • Assuming that you would qualify for the site, would this be something you would join?
    • They accept roughly only 15% of applicants, and even the founder, Greg Hodge, was stripped of his account last year for not being “hot” enough. Because of this, the founder then built in a feature that lets people know why they go rejected and offer suggestions on what to get corrected through plastic surgery.
      • Is there anything that you wouldn’t mind getting plastic surgery on yourself?
      • Would you date someone that has had plastic surgery done?
    • I’ve been joining a few “exclusive” groups on FB recently, like the ones where you have to submit an application. It’s mainly to weed out people who know nothing about the subject matter that the group’s about. It seems to help and the discussions tend to be pretty focused and are full of useful information. So I’m thinking, having requirements itself isn’t a bad thing.
      • If you could make an exclusive dating site, what requirements would you put for applicants?
  • R Topic:  Creepy Jobs In Society
    • We talk a lot about work but what people don’t realize is the diversity of jobs out there. While in transition for my next career move, I wanted to see what was out there and here’s what I uncovered and wanted to get you guys’ thoughts on the matter.
      • What’s the creepiest (or weirdest) job you have ever partaken in?
      • Based on this list, what is the most creepy?
        • Bomb Technician
        • Crab Fisherman
        • Crime Scene Cleaners
        • Entomologist
        • Epidemiologist
        • Forensic Psychologist
        • Herpetologist
        • Medical Laboratory Technologist
        • Pathologist
        • Phlebotomist
        • Police Diver
        • Psychiatric Ward Attendant
        • Steeplejack
        • Taxidermist
        • Toxicologist
      • How about the least creepy?
      • Based on gender stereotypes more men are expected to take up these roles vs. women, do you think this is still the case in 2019?
